Tesla Powerwall 2 From Solaray Energy
With twice the capacity of its predecessor, the Powerwall 2 is set to completely revolutionise the way Australian households use, store and manage their power. It is with great excitement that we announce that the Tesla Powerwall 2 is now available for order from Solaray Energy. Powerwall 2 is a home battery that stores excess solar electricity to be used in the evening. It can also draw power from the grid when power prices are low.
Compact, stackable and with a built-in inverter, Powerwall 2 enables solar households to further reduce their power bill and maximise self-consumption of solar power. In fact, with a capacity of 13.5 kWh, a typical family home will be able to run all evening on stored solar power.
Powerwall 2 comes in 2 different models:
- AC-Coupled Powerwall 2 without backup for any existing solar system including Enphase, SMA, Fronius and ABB inverters (Approx. $11,000-$12,000 fully installed).
- AC-Coupled Powerwall 2 with backup (add approx. $1000). This is a different model to the AC-coupled Powerwall 2 so you can’t update to backup after installation. Again, this battery is compatible with any existing solar system. The backup function allows for 1 full cycle after the grid goes down.

How Powerwall 2 Works
Tesla Powerwall 2 is an all-in-one solution that uses an internal inverter to convert DC energy to the AC energy required for your home, lowering cost and complexity. The liquid thermal control system regulates Powerwall’s internal temperature to maximize battery performance in any climate.
